About the artwork
This is an oil painting on the found soviet-era portrait of Lenin. The canvas is a little damaged. The unframed painting is 100 x 80 cm.

Lenin was a brand, a myth created by Soviet propaganda to unite many completely different people. However, in the late 80s, almost no one believed in this myth. The image of Lenin turned into a kind of chimera from fragments of propaganda pathos, folk jokes, obscure historical facts, and numerous souvenir propaganda images. Lenin looked at the USSR people with millions of eyes, but it no longer inspired respect and fear, but rather annoyed.
As for the real living Lenin's personality, he wanted to make the world a better place, but at the cost of millions of lives. The greatest crimes in the history of humanity have been committed to achieving the common good. This cannot be justified and must not be forgotten.
